Mix Master: David Jimenez in Architectural Digest

{David Jimenez’s glamorous living room features gold suzani pillows from Jayson Home & Garden, a vintage flokati drive, vintage coffee table, and a 1940s Lorin Jackson latticework chair for Grosfeld House. Doesn’t the room have great bones?}

It’s hard to believe that I first blogged about David Jimenez way back in 2008. Time really flies, doesn’t it? David’s beautiful homes and work have appeared on La Dolce Vita multiple times over the years and he has always been so gracious and kind to me so I was thrilled to see his stunning new home featured in the April issue of Architectural Digest. David’s former Kansas City home and carriage house have made the rounds on blogs and now on Pinterest for several years, but this is the first time his new apartment has been published, so it is very exciting to see new design work from him. After living in a three story historic home, David was ready to downsize and eventually fell in love with this beautiful apartment in the Sophian Plaza, an elegant apartment house built in the Beaux Arts style in 1923.

{David used this beautiful chocolate brown paint from Restoration Hardware in his previous home and I’m glad to see that he carried it over into his new one. It looks so rich, especially with the contrast of the crisp white trim. The daybed is from Williams-Sonoma Home and the chesterfield sofa is by Ralph Lauren Home.}

{I love David’s crisp, masculine bedroom. The grey, ivory, and black color palette is tailored and soothing, creating a welcome respite from the daily grind. The folding screen and sofa are vintage and the chandelier is from Williams-Sonoma Home.This room is a really fitting example of the story’s title, “Mix Master”. It takes a special talent to make pieces from so many different periods in such a variety of styles look this cohesive.}

{The bright, cheery kitchen features the same crisp, polished elegance of the rest of the house.}

I literally gasped upon opening up AD and spied that insanely gorgeous living room. I find it so difficult to source completely contemporary furnishings and still make it look collected and livable. He's a mix master indeed! I DIE for the creamy cushy flokati but the pups just won't have it! Ahhhh one day ;D

Peace. Love. LOL!
